TorstenWWhat can I say?

Voted 5/5

This insulated jacket is sooo NorthFace-ish, for better or worse! I personally think it is almost perfect except for a zipper which is notoriously hard to start on occasion, and a hood which seems a bit over-size and square when you first try it on in the store. You can cram a balaclava, ball-cap, and another hood under there for a perfect fit though, which is absolutely awesome in cold weather. It wears and fits well, and is made fairly ruggedly. More importantly, it has given me no problems in the three years I have owned it... :-)
